know, when barack obama first came into office, we gave away a lot of missile defense scheduled to go into europe because we wanted to please the russians. we wanted to hit the reset button and look where that's gotten it. it's gotten us nothing except we've delayed protections for ourselves and our allies. we have to do what's best for our defense and our allies' defense and do what ronald rean said. we should have peace through strength, not peace through weakness. peace through strength. lou: the north koreans have at least two missiles for launch, estimated to be, by all counts, and of course, yu're far better briefed on this than the people but by all accounts a range of at least 00 miles. how concerned are you that they will, indeed, be launched and what should be the u.s. response? >> well, fortunately, we do have some good theater missile defenses in place today, missile destroyers that we already had and we beefed that up. japanese had some with our help and they're deploying that and we have some inter continental ballistic missile interceptors, lou, in both california and a
're no exception. so i think when you look at the sector, it's a more defensive space than you might think. and in our case, we're a total return story. we are pay agonize dividend with this offering. we feel good about the offering that we have. >> it is very unusual that you said you're going to be offering investors a dividend. very rare for a new public company to do that. why did you decide to offer a dividend? >> it speaks of the strength of the company. we generate a lot of free cash flow. we're looking at a total return for our investors. a dividend is a big part of that. that's a solid part we can offer. >> do you think that's going bring more investors to buy into the stock? >> people are look for yield these days, for sure. and that's certainly an advantage. >> and the seaworld ipo by the way is one of the five biggest offers in the u.s. this year. >>> still to come on the program, the housing mke sis of. and with the nation's home builder schedule due to report their earnings next week, we take a look at the one company you should watch. but first, here is a look at how interna
for self-defense and for hunting and for sportsman activities. target shooting. i still go target shooting basically out my backyard in searchlight with my grandchildren. but i've always had trouble understanding why people need assault weapons to hunt or protect their homes or to target shoot. when the assault weapons ban came before the senate for a vote ten years ago, i called my friends, one in particular, who is a real advocate with -- on guns. and he said to me, you can't define an assault weapon. why are you doing this? you can't define an assault weapon. he convinced me he was right, so i voted against that. i voted against the ban. just about a month ago i called this same friend. i asked if his opinion had changed. generally no, but specifically yes, it had changed. he still opposes a ban on assault weapons. i said tell me why. i found his new reasoning absurd. and even though i care a great deal about my friend, he's headed in the wrong direction. so it caused me to reassess my position. he said do police have assault weapons? i said, yeah, some of them. he said if they have the
suggested the united states would reduce our missile defense system in asia for exchange -- in exchange for chinese help with north korea. it seems to me even though we are being threatened by nuclear attack by the north korean government, first of all is that an accurate statement? if so, explain that if you would. >> no. not an accurate statement. i think it was corrected while i was over there. there was reporting to that effect. what i -- there was no offer, no deal, no contemplation of it. what i did say publicly and i'll say it again, is that the president took specific deployment steps of missile defense in direct response to north korea. and it stands to reason that if the north korean threat disappears, there would be a logical question of whether or not that same level of deployment is necessary. all i stated was a sort of fact based on the rationale of the deployment itself. >> do you think that the united states should give aid to north korea of some type to temper their saber rattling, which they seem to do, about this time every year? >> no. >> all right. thank you for tho

.i.t. technologies cut across every sector of our economy and our national defense infrastructure. our relatively modest 20-year investment in nitr-d programs has contributed immeasurably to our economic and national security by enabling innovation and job creation in the n.i.t. and providing american students with the skills to fill these jobs. let's re-authorize this program today and ensure that it remains strong. i want to thank my friend, mrs. lummis, for reintroducing a bipartisan bill once again in this congress and i also would like to thank my staff and in sokolo for their hard work on this bill and i urge my colleagues to support h.r. 967 and reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman reserves, the gentleman from texas is recognized. mr. smith: i yield five minutes to mrs. lummis the sponsor of this legislation and who chairs the subcommittee of the science, space and technology committee. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman from wyoming is recognized for five minutes. mrs. lummis: thank you, mr. speaker. i want to start by thanking chairman smith and
defense ministers have already begun consideration of the size and mission for a post-2014 force in afghanistan. one factor that will influence that decision is the size and capacity of the afghan security forces. in this regard, the recent decision by nato defense ministers to support maintaining the afghan security forces at the current 352,000 through 2018, rather than reducing the support to a level of 230,000, as previously planned, is the right thing to do. it sends an important signal of our continued commitment to a safe and secure afghanistan and make it feasible for us to have a smaller u.s. and coalition presence after 2014. the greatest challenge to afghanistan's security is not the taliban, but the pakistan- based sanctuaries for militant extremists, launching cross border attacks into afghanistan. pakistan has said it supports a stable and secure afghanistan. but its actions belie its words. the u.s.-pakistan relationship will not be normalized so long as those extremists safe havens exist on pakistani territory. another large challenge to a stable afghanistan is th

, requires the inspectors general of the intelligence community, departments of justice and defense, as well as the privacy and civil liberties board to submit a report to congress every year regarding the use of the information shared with the federal government. this amendment asks the inspector general of the department of homeland security to list enspectors general required to submit the report. it also adds the house and senate committee on homeland security to the list of committees that will receive the report. currently only the house and senate intelligence committee will receive the report. having the department of homeland security as a department included in this reporting requirement adds one more layer to this accountability. allow me to talk about the overall bill and why it has my support. i believe we need a 21st century solution for this 21st century problem. i have heard from businesses and constituents in arizona with firsthand knowledge of this issue. it's affecting both large corporations and small businesses alike. our national security, our financial security, are un

, defense secretary is in israel for the first stop of his week-long mideast trip. it's his first mideast visit as defense secretary. he will talk about serious civil war and the nuclear program. he will talk about u.s. arms deal with israel. this morning israel and the u.s. are both focused on preventing iran from getting a nuclear weapon. and john kerry is wrapping up a trip to istanbul. to push ahead with mideast peace efforts. he also announced a new $100 million aid package that will assist fighters. secretary kerry says the additional money will double the nonlethal assistance to syrian opposition. it will increase aid. secretary kerry says the situation in syria is at a critical moment and the bloodshed needs to stop. the united nations estimates the fighting killed more than 70,000 people and they are asking the syrian president to step down. >>> more than a decade after the september 11 attack on the world trade . crews started sifting through the debris at the beginning of the month. since then, more than two dozen human remains have been found. more than 2700 people died at the
, no doubt the fantastic country singer. hi, jim, as we all know, the department of defense is planning to downsize the military over the next few years as we also conclude our business in afghanistan. do you believe the large amount of dod contractors and military expert personnel will flood the job market and increase the demand for goods? no, trace, by the way the army and navy don't move that fast. there could be a peace dividend, where we cut the budget deficit, that happened in the '90s. i don't think you should look at this issue in a way to make money off it, though. it's really not a needle-mover. as a matter of fact, it can be negative for a lot of the defense companies, as we know. and they have been under a cloud because of these cuts. here's one from danny in new york. hi, jim, i have heard you say considering the downside of an equity that you would short a stock rather than buy a put. please elaborate. danny, i am so glad you sent me this. because if i have created any misperception that i favor shorting stocks, it is completely out of character with all my books and what

of defense. we built a strengthened homeland security enterprise and a more secure america, better to face the challenges we face. the president'sle budget allows us to build on the progress by preserving core front line operations priorities. at the same time, given the current fiscal environment, this is the third straight year that our budget requests reflects a deduction from the previous year. our request is $800 million below the f.y. 2013 enacted budget. our mission has nod changed and we continue to face evolving threats. we've become more strategic how we use these resources. this is coupled with a unprecedented with a fiscal discipline that has led to $4 billion in cost reductions over the past four years in a process we call efficiency review. before i get to the nuts and bolts of the budget i want to talk about sequestration. >> excuse me. can i ask you to pause a little bit longer. if you could pause for a moment dub. we want to get this quarum ieve we have a .nd if i can find -- here we go i would like to take this opportunity to conduct a brief business meeting -- to consi
without using components made by potential adversaries, and i gave a talk at national defense university in washington three years ago, and they said, yeah, we kind of know that, but the defense contractors control congress, and nobody cares. okay, i'm not a defense guy. i'm talking to military officers. you guys worry about it. now, if you don't mind the idea of the u.s. being dependent for its defense on a hostile deck at a timer ship, go ahead. t somebody else about it, but that's part of free trade. other nations manage this stuff. the u.s. historically prior to the end of the cold war had controls on this stuff because we understood that you need descril base, not just for economic reasons, but also for security. now, interestingly enough, this ties back into american history because i mentioned al exapedder hamilton before. one of the reasons that he became a protectionist, and he was the lone economist among the founding fathers, the guy who turned this country in that direction. he talked to general washington and said, look, if we just have free trade in the new country pee put
at a cost of $12 billion. the official position of taiwan's ministry of national defense remains committed to procuring those submarines from the u.s. however, as the u.s. stopped making these diesel submarines many years ago, the sale has been stalled. i know we worked with france and some of our allies on this. could you advise what the current status of this submarines being acquired by taiwan is? and finally, you don't necessarily have to comment on this. if you'd like to you can, but former -- but the former president languishes today in a jail cell in taiwan. to me it smacks of the criminalization of politics. . stoot extent this administration communicates with the president i urge you to urge president mah to do the humanitarian thing, president chen's health is failing. i now yield to you, thank you. >> thank you, congressman. i appreciate it. i'll take that and just follow up on it. let me see what we can do about that. on burma, you are absolutely correct. there will be bumps in the road. i hope not big ones. obviously things are happening today that were unimaginable a few year
them. that doesn't mean that national defense is not a good idea. on the other hand for people who think that marijuana is relatively safe. they don't think that the gateway evidence is consistent. that people should be left to do what they want to do so as long as they're not harming others, for them there are lots of good arguments for legalizing even without the 20 billion and that's icing on the cake. >> what tax per ounce of weed sold legally did you put into your equation? >> didn't compute it quite that way, but something like 50 to $100 an ounce and market prices now of marijuana vary a lot, but typically maybe in the 3 to $400 a range and that's a tax rate which is higher than on say, normal goods as part of the sales taxes and not so high as to drive the market underground because of tax evasion. stuart: would you expect the price generally to the public to go down if it were fully legalized all across the country? >> i think it will probably go down some and my estimates assume a fairly substantial reduction. the same time, i think we're very close to a defacto legal mar
in this whole region has been through the department of defense, the military, defense contractors, shipbuilding, hundreds of years of history here building ships. we're the only place in the world that builds nuclear aircraft carriers and submarines and those kinds of vessels. the full range of maritime business. the report. hampton roads is probably the largest physical port. -- on the east coast of the u.s. the challenge is running a city like virginia beach are probably not a lot different than most every city in the country right now. that's all all changing relationships of federalism, the relationship between the state and federal government changing dramaticallymaking it much more difficult to finance the operation of cities to keep up with the needs in terms of part, and just the ongoing eds of the community for cultural, recreational, those kinds of activities. resources are getting harder and harder to find. and the competition for those resources is sharper than ever and it's a real balancing act to try to sort through that and come up with a program that will take us out through the
, it will worsen dramatically and be far more costly . the defense department has studied potential threats to national security posed by climate change . d.o.d.'s 2010 quad perennial defense review -- quadrennial defense review states climate change may act as an accelerant for instability and that in turn would place burdens on civilian institutions and militaries around the world . the top commander in the pacific, admiral samuel locklear, said the biggest long-term security challenge in the pacific is the climate change . as the pacific commander, he understands the impact that sea level rise and extreme weather events can have on our military resources and on civilian populations in the pacific . my constituents in minnesota also understand that the threat of climate change . that's why recently nearly 400 people gathered at a local lutheran charge in wilmer, minnesota, to talk about climate change . wilmer is not a big city, so when this many people gather in one place, you know it's a big deal . they're concerned about climate change and the marked increase in severe weather occurren

disarmament. the reaganites in the defense department were horrified by this and put a stop to it but reagan didn't go all the way with reaganism when he had a chance to end the cold war, especially the nuclear threats. so it's a hard-core republican belief. if you remember the pup pup prime -- republican primaries of 2012, it was not that long ago there were eight or ten republican candidates in simi valley for a debate at the reagan library and every one of them said reagan set the example how maring be strong, reagan did with the soviet union and we should do it today in iran, we should do it -- we were right toy trite in iraq. america should use its power to achieve its spend destroy its enemies. i worked in the cold war and in the middle east. you have 29% of the american people agree with that today. >> richard, do you want to say something? you're leaning forward. >> no. >> okay. we want to take questions from the audience if anybody has a question, and i think there's a microphone somewhere that someone is going to bring up. why don't we start right up here on the aisle, blue shirt.
government is increasingly held in such low regard by the american people. but for the left the defensive crouch at least makes sense. liberalism's main purpose today is to defend its past gains from conservative reform. but negativity on the right, to my mind, makes no sense at all. the left has created this false narrative that liberals are for things, and conservatives are against things. when we concede this narrative even just implicitly, we concede the debate before that debate even begins. and yet too many of us, elected conservatives especially, do it anyway. we take the bait. a liberal proposes an idea, we explain why it won't work, and we think we've won the debate at that moment. but even if we do, we reinforce at ivat i'm talking about; winning battles while we're losing the war at every step. this must be frustrating to the scholars of the heritage foundation who work every day producing new ideas, ideas about what conservatives can be for. but it should be even more frustrating to the conservatives around the country that we as elected conservatives were, in fact, elected to
the bombings at the boston marathon. now his relatives are coming to his defense. they say they don't understand what could have made him turn and some believe he may have been forced by his older brother. >> doesn't make any sense. the facts don't add up. i think it's -- there has to be something we are missing or that we don't understand. >> the older brother 26-year- old tamerlan tsarnaev was killed during the manhunt, during a shoot out with police. he was an amateur boxer, married with a 3-year-old daughter. one of his aunts said that he had become a more devout muslim but none of his relatives believed that he held extremist views, though he was interviewed by the fbi back in 2011 and he was questioned about possible ties to extremists but eventually in that case he was cleared. this morning we are also learning mop about how the younger bombing suspect, the survivor spent the days after the bombings. according to one report he worked out at the gym, went to an on campus party. this morning he remains in the hospital in serious condition and has yet to be interviewed. live i
of the case and then he will have an arraignment. he will have a defense attorney and under normal circumstances somebody arrested on a friday night would not be arraigned until friday monday. however, he could be a rate as early as saturday if he is medically up to it. >> within the next month, legal analysts say the boston marathon bombing suspect.19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev. will be indicted by a grand jury. then the case is assigned to a district judge. a justice department official says tsarnaev will not be read his miranda rights because the government is invoking a public safety exception. when police have an objectively reasonable need to protect the police or the public from immediate danger. tsarnaev will be questioned by a special federal interrogation team for high- value suspects. >> president barak obama and republicans used their weekly addresses to celebrate the resolve americans demonstrated after the attack on the boston marathon. in the address obama emphsized that "the world witnessed one sure and steadfast truth: americans refuse to be terrorized." >> ultimat
that we have provided by the department of defense. if that changes, we will have to look and see if we can accommodate that change, and if not, then we will have to say we have a requirement for resources. >> thank you very much, and i look forward to sitting down with you to look at the matrix that brought about such a change in three months, and let me just say, mr. secretary, i was not addressing the increased number of claims coming in the door, i was addressing the number of claims that are actually processed and determined, and that does not seem to be getting better. >> thank you. >> thank you, mr. chairman. i will try to ask two questions in too short a period of time. it's homelessness on the one hand, suicides on the other. how do you pick the tragedy, the worst tragedy? up to 22 suicides a day. you are making an enormous role in mental health, the experts and the support staff. it will take time to get that into the system and trained, too. how do you look at the general population, starting with ptsd, and as it gets into the mental health and terrifies themselves and raises

to fund the construction of the national bio anding a row defense facilities in kansas. we've talked about. this i'm sure we'll talk about it more today the and i understand the importance of studying animal diseases, but i hope we can avoid providing full funding, $700 million some, full funding, to 2014 alone, for a multi-year construction probably. y building a building in lodge cal segments, taking away resources from other facilities like i.c.e. and the coast guard and fema, maybe even management moneys that we need from the department. and finally, i'm concerned by proposed cuts and the support that the homeland security provides to state and local governments and first responders through homeland security grants, exercises in training and as we saw clearly this week in state and local officials are the ones who will inevitably be on the front line responding to terrorist attacks. my friend always reminds us we need to be risk-based and we need to keep that in mind particularly as we consider these grants to our state and local colleagues. while acknowledging that our approach must b
